Folks,

We're using Microsoft Search Server 2008 Express to crawl our site, and I'm running into some things that need to improve.  I'd like to investigate writing, or extending upon the existing HTML IFilter such that I can have the crawler ignore certain parts of my web pages. 

Do you out there in the community believe this is possible?  If so, are there articles that you would recommend reading?  Any help would be very appreciated, and I'll try to post the code that I use as well, once I'm under way.

Thanks,
Mark
